Iron, Fine Octahedrite - IVA
Great Namaqualand, Namibia (25° 30'S, 18° 0'E)
Nickel-Iron Meteorites are among the most coveted varieties and tend to exhibit all of the characteristics that one would expect in something from Outer Space. Of this type of Meteorite, Gibeon is definitely one of the most popular. With its impressive aesthetics coupled with its significant size, this stunner is a winner across the board. The large and defined regmaglypts give a texture of complexity to the piece, and the marked patterning and sublime edging results in an appearance of fluidity. This fine specimen, which sits solidly without a base, should appeal to any aficionado of Iron Meteorites. No collection of Iron Meteorites, or really any group of Meteorites for that matter, would be complete without a specimen like this one.
